Black Friday tradition

The Mall of America is a special spot for my family, most especially because my husband and I first met there. Every year we go to the Mall of America on Black Friday. It's honestly not as crazy as it sounds! We went again this year; I'll post that story soon.

I took our pictures from last year and made a mini album using the following color combo as inspiration:

The desaturated colors are warm but not to showy, perfect for my bright photos.

Here's the mini-album:

I used paint on my stamps to make the images stand out on the black paper. I also used some gems and baker's twine to add some texture to the pages.

And here's the GCD Studios products I used:

Animal Crackers for boys Cube Leaf

Animal Crackers for boys Wallpaper Stripe

Animal Crackers for boys Fauna Stripe

Animal Crackers for boys Quirky rub-on letters

The Great Outdoors Trail Blazer

Chip Art Stars

Chip Art 5x7 mini album kit

Enjoy these muted hues, even when scrapping a bright and wild event!

Love the album Jennifer, your chosen colors are perfect. I've never been to the mall, but I've heard lots of stories.

Mall of America on Black Friday does sound scary, though I've never been anywhere near there. I love the album-I love black backgrounds. One might even call them "blackgrounds."
